Even the kids will try this, iit must be the slightly sweeter angle, they really are tasty, but you must drain the sprouts well!!!!!!

  1. Cook the sprouts in plenty of boiling water, until soft in the centre, about 10 minutes. They need to be slightly over cooked I think.
  2. Or place into a medium sized bowl, add salt, pepper and 200mls water. Cover with film, make a couple of small holes and microwave for 5 minutes. Check and see if cooked, if not re cover and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  3. Cool under cold water then drain really well. This can be done a few hours before.
  4. Then you come to serve, there is only one way to warm them up, pop them in the microwave.
  5. Warm the oil and add the shallot and cook for 1 minute to soften, then add the curry paste cook for a further 1 minute, then cool.
  6. To serve, warm the sprouts, tip off any water, then stir in the curry and shallots, crème fraiche, chutney and finally chopped coriander.
  7. Serve
